Kentucky Kingdom welcomes 600k guests through its doors since reopening this year

Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay set to reopen next year


When Kentucky Kingdom reopened its doors earlier this year, many were wondering if the park could make a comeback after previous attempts failed.  The park was originally owned by Six Flags back in 1997–2010 and was closed until May 24, 2014, when t Ed Hart and the Kentucky Kingdom Redevelopment Company set out to return the park to its former glory.

The first season has been deemed a success with 600,000 visitors and the park sold 117,000 season passes in the 2014 season.

“It’s really great having Kentucky Kingdom open again,” said Clifford “Rip” Rippetoe, president of the Kentucky State Fair Board.

The park will close out its 2014 season this weekend with the rumor that the park will be adding some new additions of the 2015 season with a $8 million to $10 million budget for expansion, including the reopening of the T2 roller coaster under the new name, T3.
